Here’s the last 3D item that I made for my craft fairs – absolutely adorable Christmas lightbulb treat holders which hold a little candy. They use the now retired curvy keepsake framelits, a little glue and some scoring and you’re done. You could easily put these together in time to dress up your table (as long as you already have the dies that is!)

I found these on Lydia Fiedler’s blog, Understand Blue. Lydia is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who really adores techniques; I encourage you to read her blog. Here’s her video showing how she made these.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.

Here’s another of the items that I made for the craft fair – a box full of foiled chocolate balls with a label from More Than Chocolate declaring that chocolate makes everything better. Well it does, doesn’t it? It’s an economical box since you can get 2 from a piece of cardstock but it also holds a lot of chocolate – 14 of them. Sam (Pootles) has a video showing her box and how to make it and you can view it here.

I made changes in the closure and the decoration. I added a strip of washi from the Year of Cheer specialty washi which I feel makes the box look really grand. I wrapped a belly band of ribbon around the box – berry burst – and then added a bow attached with glue dots. The sentiment is backed by a silver foil circle from the layering circles dies. I then added dimensionals down the centre of the circle and ensured that they only attached to the ribbon so that the belly band could slide off.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.

Here’s a hot chocolate pouch that I made for my recent craft fair – I used retired DSP because I had some beautiful Christmas paper left from last year. This is the diaper fold and I used a sheet of paper 11 by 11 inches.

It’s very simple – a few folds, no glue and you have your pouch. I also made the same pouches with 6 by 6 inch paper and put 3 Dove nuggets inside.

Today I’m sharing a project I made for a recent craft fair. I only did one this year since I wasn’t sure how my energy level would hold up; I’m happy to say that I made it through the fair but I needed a lot of sleep to recover! It took me quite a while to make my things for the fair too – just a few at a time. Anyway, if you need a simple project for your kids’ teachers or friends, here’s one that you can make very quickly.

I simply measured the microwave popcorn packet, cut some cherry cobbler to size and wrapped it around the popcorn. For my popcorn packets, I used 9″ by 6″ which meant that I got 2 wrappers out of a sheet of 12 by 12 with a 3 by 12 piece leftover. For the belt, I glued a buckle made from 2 retired ornate punches. Punch the smaller one first so that you can line up the bigger, it’s much easier that way. Ask me how I know! The buttons are punched out with the half inch circle punch. I also used one of the pieces left over to make a little gift card holder and used circle punches for the belt. I didn’t actually finish the gift card holder in time for the fair; I ran out of time or more accurately, energy. But I’m thrilled to be back doing some crafting and blogging.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.

Today I’m sharing a glue pack box; it’s a decorated wooden stamp set case filled with my favourite adhesives — and there’s even room in there to add paper snips and a bone folder. It’s an awesome gift for a beginning – or even established – crafter. It keeps all your essentials together for going to a class and it’s obvious if you’ve forgotten to put one of the elements back in the box. My last class loved them and I’m currently waiting for more supplies to arrive so that I can make more – in fact the Fresh Florals DSP stack covered one is waiting for a new fast fuse and snail (mine are in the in photo) so that I can give it to one of my attendees.

Inside I’ve put a fast fuse, SNAIL, tombow multi purpose glue, mini glue dots and a sheet of both the regular and mini stampin’ dimensionals. I do occasionally use the others glues, but it’s very rare. I’ve packaged this up in a wooden stamp set case and decorated it with some designer series paper. Then I added a little stamping. One of my favourite sayings from Crafting forever seemed apt for the front and on the back, one from Layering Love. This is a value of over $36 but I’m offering it with shipping included for just $38 (US only). Just email me at lizbaileycards@gmail.com and I’ll send you an invoice and get your pack sent out to you asap. Papers will vary.

Here are some photos from my phone of some of the other papers that I used

If you want to cover your own box, you need a piece of DSP measuring 11 1/4 by 7 inches and score at 5 inches from each end.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
